With due respect to those who copyright their works, we are nonetheless profoundly grateful to the Copyright statement, of religious material, supplied by Loraine Boettner for it seems to be very much in line with the principles of the Kingdom rather than to those of the world:
"Anyone is at liberty to use material from this book with or without credit. In preparing this book the author has received help from many sources, some acknowledged and many unacknowledged. He believes the material herein set forth to be a true statement of Scripture teaching, and his desire is to further, not to restrict, its use."
We applaud Boettner's Biblical approach to "copyright" for we wish to adhere to our Lord's command: "freely you have received, freely you give"
For all articles marked with our Copyfree symbol , the Boettner Biblical statement applies.
